Written by Jayashree
Published on November 28, 2016

Cabbage is one of the few vegetables that we bring  regularly at home.  The toughest task seems to be planning the menu for the day. Coming across this stir fry, I kinda new that it is meant for me and soon it found a place in my daily menu. Bengali style Cabbage stir fry  with potatoes and peas or Bandhakopir Torkari  is a tasty side dish that can be easily made for lunch or dinner. It is tasty with many flavours.

I first read this on my  friends Shubha’s blog. She had made it during our blog hop. It was a love at first sight with this stir fry, but I did take some months to make it.  You can find the recipe here
